i wish i had more time to blog and bake and shop and hold my baby and be with my husband and family and rest. but -- this is a fun and busy time of year! and the free time i do have goes to snuggling, not blogging. i read blogs, i find recipes and look at sweet pictures, but putting one together myself just isn't easy sometimes. so - if there is anyone out there that actually reads this, i'm sorry. i'm trying.
i have a little bit of time right now, so here's a little update.
we put up our tree! i LOVE it. i have really pretty pictures of the mantle and tree, but not on this computer, so here's one from my phone.
she is kind of obsessed with hats lately. when we found this in our christmas decorations she was really excited about putting it one. she just plays like normal, only in a santa hat!
also - i'm on a baking rampage! i took about a week break after thanksgiving, but i couldn't wait much longer. on my list of things to make:
this weekend my 10 year old niece and 5 year old nephew are coming to town. we are going to make and decorate christmas cookies from scratch! i can't wait!!
i'm also going to make this before they get there. i hope. for some reason i'm craving a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. and i found this website that gives the cheesecake factory's recipe. hello!
this might look kind of strange, but TRUST ME - it's the most amazing stuff you will EVER put in your mouth. just make it and eat it. and eat it and eat it and eat it. you'll be mad at me. it's so good. caramel puff corn. enjoy.
hopefully i'll be back soon. i'll definitely be documenting this weekends baking extravaganza!
